Default Filled a Sanke Keg

Just got done filling a sankey keg with a 10 gallon batch. I custom ground a screwdriver to remove the locking ring. I am going to start using the sankey keg for large batches. It was just too easy, I will probably be kicking myself when its time to clean the keg.

Won't be too hard to clean, just a good long soak with oxyclean. You may want to pick up a small mirror to look around inside after you soak though, just to be sure.

I've never used oxyclean before, does it work better than dawn dish soap?? Pandora rocks!

Which method do you use to seal it? I'm pretty set on spiral rings, but it'd be interesting to hear why some use snap rings....

Oxyclean = 1000 times better than dawn dish soap.

Here is how I clean my sanke keg:
1. put in some oxyclean
2. fill it with water
3. come back tomorrow
4. rinse it
5. beer it up!!

I used the stock spiral rings. I thought about using a replacement snap ring for ease of installation but I felt it would get it the way of the tap. The screw driver that I ground makes it easy to remove the center.

Sankes work great, "clutchdude" has a write-up in his sig regarding the installation of the spiral retaining rings. Simple to do once you have the technique. Not worth the effort to replace w/ standard rings once you develop the technique.
ok, found it...this is priceles for reinstalling the rings, took me a lot of head scratching till discovered this method.
